Just had breakfast here and it was excellent. The service was fantastic and nothing was too much trouble.

Just across the road from the Riu Monica, when we didn't get up early enough for breakfast, we would come here, which was quite often actually lol. Opening hours are pretty limited here.

To be honest despite coming to Nerja year after year we had never visited Ruskins but, on the advice of our friends we decided to give it a go and we were certainly not disappointed as the food, the service and the overall value for...money is out of this world. I cannot praise highly enough their Sunday roasts, they are as good as any you would get back in the UK. Ruskins also have a great three course menu of the day with plenty of choice for even the fussiest of eaters {like me). Three nights into our holiday and two consecutive visits to Ruskins we have found a new restaurant to add to our list of Nerja favourites, we will be back for the week is out.More

Ruskins is at the end of restaurant row across the street from the RUI hotel. After trying several of the other sites in this row and being thoroughly unimpressed we decided to give Ruskins a try. We ended up going back four times during our...stay in Nerja. The staff is so sweet and caring. The owners are involved and on site. The cooks take pride in their work. But the real star here is the food. It is so much better than anywhere else we ate. The menu of the day is a real bargain and gives you a chance to try their incredible homemade desserts. Their tapas are also great. Breakfast is the best. you won’t be able to stay away once you try it.More

Good fresh and hot. Nice one! Not as good as ours at home, but how could it be? A good meal if you fancy a Sunday roast

We had just arrived in Nerja, but were not able to fully check in to our hotel. It was Sunday and most of the tables had reserved on them, but there were one or two that had times of expected arrival that meant there was...still time to use them. We were going to be eating dinner at our hotel that evening and so did not want the Sunday lunch, which seems to be popular at Ruskins. My husband had the all day breakfast and I had a cheeseburger. Our plates were cleared, so that shows we enjoyed the food. The waitress was friendly and pleasant and we went away happy.More
